I like to think that my taste in decorating runs to the eclectic end of the spectrum. Admittedly I have dabbled with mid century and Hollywood Regency. I even tried minimalism. All abject failures. I couldn’t be so rigid in my taste. I liked a little bit of this, a smattering of that. High end and junk shop, family heirloom and battered hand-me-down, modern and antique and all of this arranged lovingly into my 1860 house. No wonder I’m totally smitten by this Upstate Colonial by New York-based interior designer Shawn Henderson. The interiors are sophisticated, layered and relaxed. New meets old with honesty and style to create a simple beauty.
